I support Gloria Montebruno Saller’s opposition to the atomic bomb in that we should not need to use weapons like this (“Effects of atomic bomb still felt.” Sept. 19).
However, as the daughter of a Navy officer who was on an aircraft carrier headed to Japan in August of 1945, I also know the far greater toll in life if the war has not ended when it did.
This decision was the toughest of Harry Truman’s life.
For those reading or seeing the movie of the bestseller “Unbroken,” the brutality with which our soldiers were treated by the Japanese is shocking.
Again, I respect Gloria’s feelings and share the sadness that any country has to resort to the use of nuclear weapons.
